Just test firing this unit into the air is often enough to stop an attacker. As the bright electric current pulsates across the top of the unit, it creates an intimidating electric sound. An attacker with any sense will be stopped in his tracks. If the sight and sound don’t stop him, a jolt from this unit will. The electric current is extended down the sides of the unit in order to shock anyone who would attempt to take it from you. Recharge cord (included) plugs into a standard wall outlet to save you money on batteries. This is one of our longest stun batons! At 18 inches long, this baton allows you to defend yourself while keeping you at a safe distance from your attacker. The LED flashlight provides a convenient source of light whenever you need it and eliminates the need to carry a heavy, bulky flashlight. Protects the unit and ensures a firm grip. A durable holster is included for easy carrying.
